Produce donors are key partners in assisting FVG in providing ingredients for our soup mix. The major sources are green house companies, frozen food distributors, and farmers. All product in the lower mainland is picked up by our own truck. Some product from outside the lower mainland is delivered by commercial truckers who only charge a nominal rate.
Some of the major donors are:
Heppell’s Potato Corp | B.C Frozen Foods | Sumas Ridge Greenhouse Inc. | Rosana Farms Ltd. | Agape Food Bank | Eklund Produce | Canadian Farms Ltd. | JBM | Willms Farms | Loblaw | Millennium Pacific | Ralph's Farm Market | RJR Produce | Thomas Fresh |
Our soup mix is given free of charge to relief organization, church groups and individuals. They are required to submit a request form indicating the country, people group, adequate transportation funding, staffing for distribution in the specific area and provide feedback by means of images and reports. This information is passed on to our volunteers and supporters.
In addition to many churches and individuals, some of the major organizations that contribute are:
Food For The Hungry Canada | Imani Orphan Care | Hope for Korah | Compassionate Resource Warehouse | Global Aid Network | Mission Without Borders | First Steps Health Society | Love Guatemala Canada | New West Community Church | Word & Deed | World Serve | Discipleship International | Fellowship International | Agape Food Bank | Jesus Rock of Ages Ministries |
